Slaves

With these tall dark walls that are closing in I will hold my own in this place that means nothing to me.

So what’s this lie we've have been told all our lives

fight until you’re dead its the way to survive x2

But these walls feel just too tall to try and climb above them all but these walls feel just too tall to climb above, to overcome

I know I must face this, Face this--

I know I must brave this, brave this

I won't let it break me, break me

This isn't what I'm meant to be, meant to be

I will break the chains that bind me, hold me down

I refuse to let this life confine me, pour me out

conform to this machine, unholy decree

Take to the skies, eviscerate memories

Look at how we always slave, slave away

Every day the same page, story of shame

Always repeat, never change, seek life in ashes

As one we can overcome with rage

but these walls feel just too tall to try and climb above them all but these walls feel just too tall to climb above, to overcome

so what’s this lie that we have been told all our lives

fight until you’re dead its the only way to survive x2

I feel alone but I’m not on my own

I am the only one who can make this change

My life will not be a waste

I will break through these walls and I will tear them down

We will not live the life of a slave

We will not live from workhouse to the grave

I feel alone but I’m not on my own

I am the only one who can make this change
